Kewdale, like all suburbs, has some great and some not so great spots. But in general, I feel Kewdale is very under-rated. It has a lot to offer and a lot of beautiful spots to live in. Close to Tomato Lake is great and also up near the shopping centre (on the north side, bordering Belmont/Rivervale). There is crime everywhere these days, but the City of Belmont provide the Community Watch 24/7 and do regular patrols throughout the streets as well as a strong police presence in the area to discourage criminal activity.
